Earlier this week we shared our thoughts about having a photography website in 2019 and why it’s essential to build your brand outside of the scope of social media. Besides beautiful websites with killer content, we’re also always on the lookout for people who incorporate PhotoShelter into their existing personal brand and photography business.
Someone who recently caught our eye is Joanie Simon, a self-taught food photographer with an affinity for how-to YouTube videos and giving back to the food photographer community. Her YouTube channel, The Bite Shot, has 136k subscribers and features weekly videos about color theory in food photography, behind-the-scenes moments at paid shoots, DIY backdrops and so much more.
In Joanie’s latest video, she dives deep into how she found PhotoShelter: what she was looking for in a new platform and insights into how it’s going early on in that process.
It’s clear that there were several very important factors that led to switching platforms, from storage that supported numerous file types without additional fees, easy uploads that preserved her existing file structure and user interface concerns for her clients. Joanie noted that she used her free 14-day PhotoShelter trial to deliver images for a shoot to really test us out. Lucky for us that went well and we couldn’t be more excited she made the switch!
You can watch more behind-the-scenes content on her YouTube channel The Bite Shot, plus check out her photography on her website and Instagram.
